I have been trying to re-decorate a (very small) spare bedroom into my craft room. I have been having a lot of fun with it, but I needed some color up on the walls.

I made these out of some spare fabric I had, a couple of dollar store frames and some fabric paint. I found a couple of silhouettes of a basset hound and a manx cat (my beloved furry friends), traced it onto wax paper, cut the images out with an exacto knife, double-side taped it to the fabric and used a foam brush to apply the paint. Very easy. I think it took me less than an hour from the moment I printed the image from my printer to actually hanging the frames.

The colour is great, but if you put the silhouettes onto white paper first, the background pattern should show through less. Unless it's just a camera artifact and it's barely noticeable in person.

Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
